1  Re: Secret Santa-in-July Wishlist Swap Gallery in The Swap Gallery by jemimah on: July 08, 2018 09:04:04 PM
I got two fantastic presents in the mailbox today!! Lucky me, they are both lovely!!

One is a beautiful (and practical) sketch book/journal with a cut peacock feather design on the front, plus a bonus of some gorgeous paper feathers with gold painted tips, perfect for my own crafty purposes Cheesy  The photo doesn't show the gold so well, but they catch the light beautifully.

And the other is a strip of ten (10!) fabulous machine embroidered pieces in blue and white for me to make into things. I have been on a real sewing kick lately, and these are going to be wonderful to use. I love blue and white - they're so pretty!! Grin

I couldn't even fit them all in one photo Cheesy

I think my favourite is the froggy - I love frogs!

I really enjoy using things that my craftster buddies have made - these are very much appreciated! Thank you secret Santas!!!

So I'd just been admiring the lovely beaded and crocheted mug rug this morning, and then I got my own one from Rudolph in my very own mailbox, all the way down here in New Zealand! From the North Pole nearly all the way down to the South Pole!! Cheesy

The grey is perfect AND there was a great keyring too, which makes me smile Smiley  So much dainty hand sewing - it must have taken forever to sew all those tiny beads and hand quilt it - not easy for a reindeer!! I love it - thank you so much!!!

I got a wonderfully creative package from sheepBlue!!
We agreed on three things (with a few little extra bits). She sent me three fantastic pieces Grin There's a beautiful original painting, a fabulous fibre necklace, and a dalek scarf made from her own printed fabric (LOVE SO much!!). And a wee Star Trek card holder (because sadly sheepBlue can't count to three Wink )

Plus some very amusing souvenirs of a famous water tower where she lives (yes, it's the world's most phallic building, LOL!!)  

The artwork has an amazing texture that's a bit hard to capture in photos ...

The necklace is beautiful and in my favourite colours - perfect for my autumn wardrobe!

Thank you so much!! I had a great time crafting for you and I love what you created Smiley

Wow, this gallery is taking off!!

That charm necklace is so cute!  Cheesy  I love the cat bowls, they are fab! The shoes are amazing!
Every package is stuffed with awesomeness! Cheesy

I got my AMAZING box from the super-talented and lovely Averia!! Prepare to be astounded!!

All the loot!

There's beautifully hand-stitched felt coasters, a gorgeous reversible mug rug (leafy side showing), the cutest birdy pouch, a fantastic long pouch, and not one but THREE fabric boxes! So spoilt!!!!! Grin

Close up of the other side of the mug rug. (BF is seriously impressed with the Smiths quote Wink )

... and close up of the beautiful wolf applique.

Everything is EXQUISITELY made, as Averia always does. (I'm having a bit of swap anxiety tbh!) Thank you so much Ave!! I adore everything, and it's all going to be well used and loved in my new home. Grin

Oh I missed so many wonderful things!! You are all amazing - the linoprints and the trees, the beading and monsters, the thread catcher and the embroidery kit, and the cushion covers - and so much more - all wonderful!! I would love to swap with all of you Smiley

In the midst of packing to move, I got a fabulous parcel from edelC. Grin She sent a gorgeous handmade journal, some very cute Christmas ornaments (which fit with my natural + red + gold assortment perfectly), and a fantastic stencilled T-shirt which fits perfectly and which I just love!!

Thank you so much edel!! This will be my last swap for a while and it was such a pleasure crafting for you and getting to know you Smiley Vinaka!!

I got a gorgeous parcel from Averia!!

She claimed me for a tissue box cover, but what she made went way beyond a nice box shape in fabric. She made a truly beautiful, hand embroidered, linen one - it's perfect!! Grin

.... but wait, there's more!! it's reversible!! with fabulous batik patchwork in delicious colours AND a matching mug rug!!!!

It's absolutely gorgeous Averia, thank you SO much!

That's a great haul frosty!!

I just received the most fantastic package from zombiecazz!! I love it!!

My hubby brought in the parcel .... "what's this? some of your craftster stuff I suppose ..."  Roll Eyes

I said "Oooooooh!!" and promptly ripped it open, and when I saw what it was, before I took it out of the wrapping, my face must have lit up ......  Cheesy

.... because hubby said, "what is it?"  Roll Eyes

I said, "what's my favourite thing?" Cheesy

"..... it's a dalek, isn't it ....."  Roll Eyes

 It IS a dalek, a fab quilted dalek bag!! With bonus cat pouch!!

Thank you so much zombiecazz - there's so much work and thought and creativity that's gone into them, and I will really enjoy using them!! Grin

I got a bit behind on the gallery and have just been catching up - there is so much AMAZING creativity in here!! You are all incredible!!

I'm going to add to the awesome too - I got my parcel from the fabulous alwaysinmyroom today!! Grin Eeeeee!!

Look at all the gorgeousness! Look! Look!!

She went with a Japanese-inspired theme, and everything is so beautiful and colour co-ordinated! There's a gorgeous hand dyed fabric bin (each side is a different design) and a set of exquisite origami cards! The shibori knot bag is perfect (and reversible) - aimr thought it would be a good little project bag, but it's so pretty I want to show it off as a little summer wristlet bag Smiley

And, yes, I got hand knit socks!! and they fit perfectly!! so spoilt!! And even more gorgeous, the wonderful silk mohair scarf in my favourite colour!! And supplies too - an amazing assortment of silk thread, and the softest baby alpaca yarn in the most gorgeous deep colour (photo doesn't do it justice). 

See all this wonderful shibori? aimr actually HAND DYED ALL THIS HERSELF!! I'm so impressed!!!

I think my new scarf looks fab with my new haircut too! Cheesy

Thank you SO much alwaysinmyroom - you are such a wonderful, fun, generous and thoughtful craftster!!!!  Kiss
